While promoting her blue lights glasses collection, Chrissy talked about handling her kids' screentime.

She explained that rather than say no screen time, she and John try to find activities that distract them. In her words:

"You have to keep them involved in things they love and be a master at distraction. Luna will beg to use my phone, like beg, in bed because there's an app she loves."

"We are not those people that are like, 'No screen time!' So, you try to download all the coolest learning activities so at least they're learning something."

The former model explained that making kids watch TV all day affects their sleep schedule because they tend to think back on what they have seen. 

She mentioned that Luna loves "Hocus Pocus" and Mary-Kate and Ashley movies.

As a result of the craziness at home, she confessed that she seizes any opportunity to have some peace. She said:

"I think that's why when I'm like in a car or something, people are like, 'What music do you like to listen to in the car?' I'm like, 'Silence.' I like pure silence, 'cause our house is crazy."

Chrissy's realness when it comes to being a mum is nothing short of amazing. She's super relatable, and we love her for that!
